The Giants started the draft by taking Penn State running back Saquon Barkley with the second pick overall. No other Giants players wore the number entering the NFL Draft, so it seemed inevitable that he'd keep the number he made his own in college.
New general manager Dave Gettleman did just that.
UN Security Council to survey Rohingya crisis in Myanmar
Some of the Muslim refugees broke down in tears as they told the ambassadors harrowing stories of murder and rape in Myanmar. The Security Council has called for the safe return of the Rohingya and an end to the discrimination against them.
NY switched to defense in the third round, taking edge-rushing linebacker Lorenzo Carter of Georgia with the 66th pick overall and bullish tackle B.J. Hill of North Carolina State three selections later. He can chase down running backs and receivers looking to run after the catch.

The Giants offensive line struggled last season with injuries and poor play.
NY lost center Weston Richburg and left guard Justin Pugh to free agency. Ereck Flowers has been asked to move from the left side to the right, but his status is uncertain; he has refused to take part in the voluntary offseason activities and minicamp.

Migrants from Central American caravan scared and hopeful for asylum
The migrants congregated on a bridge leading to the USA border while waiting to be processed by American officials. In 2016, two-thirds of asylum-seekers from Mexico, El Salvador , Honduras, and Guatemala, had their cases denied .
NY waived veteran receiver Brandon Marshall last week after he failed his physical. The Giants could use one more inside linebacker for depth in the new 3-4 alignment. It also would be good with Eli Apple coming off a disappointing season and fellow cornerback Janoris Jenkins returning from ankle surgery.
